Cartographic Comedy

I've just discovered a site devoted to one of my favorite childhood TV shows, The Hilarious House of Frightenstein. The show starred Billy Van in a variety of roles: The Count, Grizelda, Bwana Clyde Batty, etc. This is a real gem for those Canadians who are old enough to remember when Saturday morning programmes weren't simply a merchandising vehicle. Billy Van also worked on a comedy record of Canadian history, Canada Observed, from which I've pulled the following track. Enjoy! Mapmaker, Mapmaker, Make Me a Map!1
